About Me

My photo
Hi, I'm Pam and thank you for visiting my blog. I have been making cards for over 10 years and am an independent demonstrator for Creative Expressions. I am lucky enough to teach on cruise ships and also get the chance to demo at The Big Stamping and Scrapbooking Show at Alexander Palace. I run workshops for a local craft shop and if anyone would like details of the them please e-mail me at stephen.smith870@ntlworld.com I love to scrapbook but my all time favourite thing is to get messy with ink!

Thinking of You

Good Morning, it's Tuesday and I'm back with another project for Creative Expressions using the Decorative Elements Mask.

Well, we'd better get started!

Spray a piece of Coconut White Card with Cosmic Shimmer Purple Orchid Vintage Ink Spray Mist.
Dry, then spray again with Cosmic Shimmer Antique Rose Vintage Mist.  Dry.
Distress the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
Place the Decorative Elements Mask over the card and apply Cosmic Shimmer Vivid Violet Sparkle Texture Paste to one corner.  Remove the mask and leave to dry.  Repeat on the opposite corner.

Replace the mask on the two opposite corners and stencil through with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.

Ink up the Baroque Frame Singles Stamp with Black Archival Ink and stamp onto a piece of Coconut White Card.
Heat emboss.
Spray some of the Cosmic Shimmer Mist Sprays that were used on the background onto a craft sheet and paint the stamped image with them.

Stamp the sentiment with Black Archival Ink and heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.
Die cut with the Spellbinders Italian Collection Decorative Frames.

Edge the background with black ink.  Matt and layer onto white and black card.

Attach the stamped images with 3d foam pads.

Make some 3d roses from white card.  Apply some of the Vivid Violet Sparkle Texture Paste to them with a cotton bud.
Die cut leaves from the Spellbinders Foliage Die Set.
Glue the leaves and flowers onto the card.

I admit to having a problem with the Texture Paste.  It's not that it's difficult to use, it's just that I'm an impatient soul with the attention span of a gnat.  I just wish it wasn't so pretty, then I could put it away and forget about it!

I did like painting the roses with it and a cotton bud makes a great applicator!

Well, that's it for today, I'll be back in the morning with a design for Creative Studios.

Until then, many thanks for visiting and have a great day.
